Floral Inspiration

While running around town with my mom this weekend (grocery shopping and other errands), we stumbled on a greenhouse just a few blocks from where we live that we didn’t even know existed! I mean, you expect greenhouses to be visible, on flat, open spaces, right? Well, this one was actually on the rooftop of a house adapted as a florist shop.”

The greenhouse holds herbs, flowers and other houseplants, and was such a lovely sight. It reminded me of why flowers are such a source of inspiration in quilting:

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
